And now they are talking about Yellowstone here in Montana/Wyoming and I havent felt one yet. But then again I live about 100 yards from the railway and probably miss the quakes for the trains. Dont get me wrong I am not looking forward to any but it is awful funny I never feel them when they happen because i am always doing something that muffles the effects.
We're here in Livingston and you know how many trains we get here and the tracks are below our home (we live on a hill) so we hear/feel the train at all times so we neither have felt any quakes but they said the hardest earthquake was 3.9. Remember too that the quakes are deeper in the Park (about 2 1/2 hr drive from where I live) so a 3.9 wouldn't be felt.

My husband and I are concerned too. We live WAY too close to the park and if it goes I want to make sure I am good with God.

#10- Oregon

Above is more news of powerful earthquakes in Indonesia.

Yellowstone and Indonesia are just more signs of "birth pains", with more to come. The earth is groaning. The people are deaf and blind. Just like in the time of Noah.
The earth has always "groaned" folks. A lot more so in its earlier formative years. In actuality, it's generally settling down. Sorry. Mt. St. Helens has, from time to time, groaned like a nodding-off old geezer. Mt. Baker, hood and others in Oregon have, from time to time, "burped" a cloud of steam and a few tremors. Those who are lovingly looking forward to "The End Times" always predict horror and suffering. But also loving salvation for the blessed. Bit selfish, don't you think?

Yellowstone WAS a super volcano. It's next eruption, if and when, could be minor, medium, or major. What was that island that blew its top in, what, 1952? Oh yeah: Krakatoah. Clouded the atmosphere for a year or so. Wonderful godlike sunsets though!

Was it the end times? If it happened today you folks would all be happliy, hopefully and gleefully packing your travel bags. We geologist scientists would flock to it, measure it and learn more, through objective observation, so we might get even better at predictions. You know, to save innocent lives, even those of dis-believers.

The quakes are only a precursor to an eruption at some time.
We just don't know when. As with all mountains in the Pacific Ring of Fire and others just inland of same. Quite understandable from a geotechnical basis, actually. But I know; it's only us silly ego-driven scientists talking again. Whaddah we know?

The entire park is in the caldera, so there will be a huge amount earth thrown into the air. (or not... how can anyone be sure of this? Are we just hoping for a major catastrophic End Times-Suitable event here? Nice!)
It has erupted twice already that we know of, and the pattern for immediate debris extends beyond me here in Arizona.
BTW, the evidence you site for any knowledge of the size of it also includes when it happened. The same quality of evidence places a super-meteor impact in the Gulf of Mexico that ended the Era of the Dinos. Proof just as convincing. A few million years ago, for the benefit of the YEC chronologists. Selective belief.

Volcanos come, volcanos go. Check out Hawaii some time. Volcanos, nicely and quietly building paradise one island at a time.

Hi neighbor, I have some real close Church friends who live in livingston, Gary and MaryJane Andrews. They spend their winters in Florida. I will admit I am concerned but I believe the Lord has better plans for me than dying in a volcano.

Yep, when she blows there goes 1/3 of America.

Okay, first of all.....how about not blinding us with the
RED. Second, yes the earth has always groaned but not like this......the groaning of labor pains!! The earth is screaming, but most are not hearing. This is how the Bible refers to it:

Mark 13:8
Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.


1 Thessalonians 5:3
While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.


Third, I've seen you mention your "credentials" ad nauseum. Good for you, but what you don't understand with all your head knowledge is that it cannot save you, only Jesus Christ can.

Care to rephrase that, TS? I think I know what you're saying, but not sure enough to respond.

I see that fundamental Christians are jumping all over this Yellowstone thing. There are hundreds of web sites and blogs predicting an eruption in December 2012, tying it in with the Mayan calendar.....
